We started school today! My Munchkin is in 1st grade! Oh my goodness! This post may just be all exclamation points. It's ok. I promise.
He lights up my world with how excited he always is over school. Of course...we had to get a quick snapshot of our annual tradition. I've been doing this since he was in PreK-3 so even though you can't see it here there's actually 3 photos in the one photo he is holding.
I think he was surprised at how much he has grown over the past few years! It's really fun to see it each year.
This year I am also committing to being better about sending him to school with healthier meals of more variety. Last year I got caught up in a major slump of busyness and relied way to heavily on him getting a hot plate in the cafeteria. He was initially the one who asked to eat in the cafeteria because his friends were doing...but I have to take full responsibility that it just became easier for me to write a check for a week's worth of school lunch than actually going grocery shopping and preparing. My bad.
So in case you haven't figured out yet from reading my blog...I like commitment and challenges.
I'll be posting weekly on our #munchkinmeals for the week. I hope you'll share your ideas with me as well because that is the hardest part for me...staying creative and diverse so he doesn't get bored. I admit it is easy to make a turkey and cheese sandwich every day (pb isn't allowed at his school).
Munchkin Meals Day 1:
Salami and cheese sandwich.
Mozzarella Cheese Stick
Lite Kettle Corn
Strawberry and blueberry infused water (significantly reducing juice boxes this year).
Are your kids headed back to school yet? What are your family baby to school traditions? What are some of your favorite lunch items to pack?
